Two journalists were detained for five and a half hours overnight Wednesday and their equipment was temporarily confiscated after they documented Temple Mount activists trying to smuggle goat kids into Jerusalem's Old City.

Haaretz's Hagar Shezaf and the Walla website's Yotam Ronen are making an independent film on Temple Mount activists and were accompanying two of them trying to smuggle the goats in the trunk of their car.
